The Cadillacs: Speedo's Back In Town

Bill Millar, Record Mirror, 26 February 1972

EARL CARROLL is still a rocker. The other Coasters wear Afros but Mr. Earl's hair is black, shiny and slickered back. Thumbing through a copy of Who's Who In Rock 'n' Roll he stopped at the photograph of Little Richard. "Wowee. Look at that cat's suit". His hand slammed down on the page and his voice rose in an envious squeak. "There's enough material there for three of him".
